Miss Cather's New Book
Iu mi atmosphere as individual and
fall of color as that of the old manor
houses iu Russian novels, Miss Catber
unfolds this romance of tbe old west
la her book, l,A Lost Lady;" not the
west of the pioneer this time, but of
tbe railroad aristocracy that giow up
when the great transcontinental lines
were being built across the plains, in
her new book to be published this
month by Alfred A. Knopf.
A wholo opooh lives again iu tbe
little group of people so wonderfully
pictured here; iu this story of an in
couuptablo man and the beautiful
woman who was his wife, aud of the
house in which their moving drama
In every page there is a melanoholy
beauty, a thrilling pathos; It underlies
the easy brilliance of the writtiug, the
vivacity with which Miss Cnther gives
us all the idlosyncraclcs of that lavish,
generous, careless era Through the
whole story one figure stands out with
irresistible fascination the flguro of
Marian Forrester, full of feiiilnino my
stery and charm, lusurutablt in her
weakness and her leclcless courage.
She is one of Miss Cather's greatest

time pievcntcd a. full competition
for the vaiious piizcs, and made some
delays and dissapointments in the
taking of the photographs.
Three photographs were secured
the settlers of the first tour years in
one group, the four children born dur
ing the fiist thiee years, who showed
up on the grounds, und a small poition
of the ciowd that could be hastily
assembled in the other. These pictures
may be been at Gleason's gallery at
any time and they will tell something
about the gathering.
The Cowles orchestra and the sing
ing of the Cowles school children were
praised very much by the U'.ir'icnce.
Mr. Laban Wagoners solos charmed
everybody. Mrs. rtaikcr'i dobciip-
tion of life in a dug out reminded the
old tlmehs of their experiences very
vividly. John Waller, Charles Gur
ncy, Mel Sherman and Woah Wago ,er
gave vivid descriptions of cvrnfj and
conditions of pioneer life that weie
entertaining and instruc'.'.'c.
The following prizes were awarded
by the business men of Red Cloud:
Oldest man born in the county
Henry- Keeney, born May 1873, prize
a pocket knife, given by George Trine.
Oldest woman born in the county
Mrs. Maggie Oatman, born November
1871, prize gold filled knitting needles
given by James Mitchell. It is a
close: question between her and Mrs.
Lulu Mottcr as to which is the first
born! They were both born in Nov
ember 1871. In this , part of the
county we had classed Mrs. Motter
as the first girl born in the county.
She was formerly Lulu Barber. She
no longer lives here, so that there is
no question but that Mrs. Oatman de
serves the pi izc. She was Maggie
Leach before her marriage and lived
in the extreme north cast of the
county but now lives one and one
half miles east of this city.
The oldest grandson of the pioneers
is Robert McBride. Mr. McBride's
parents came to the county in com
pany with the Garbers in 1870 and his
grandmother, Grandma Mick, came
with his parents, and became a settler.
She brought with her also two grand
children, Mintie and Maggie Kizer,
one of whom married Curtis Evans,
while the other married Dp. Robinson
of Guide Rock. Mrs. Evan's dauglv
tcr, Mrs. Mabel Thomas received the
prize as the oldest great grandchild.
Her daughter is probably the oldest
great great grand-daughter. The
prize awarded to Mrs. Thomas was
a sugar bowl and creamer given by
George Coon strutted off with the
piize for the tallest pioneer, a box of.
cigars given by Grice and Grimes.
Theie was but little competition
among the heavyweights. When ,
CJharlio Amack waddled into view his
rivals disappeared He pulled down
the scales to indicate 325 pounds and

the Hamilton Clothing Company if
he can be fitted out. I
Tom Jones of Inavale claimed to
have the largest feet and his claim
was allowed This prize is given by
the Marshbank Machins Shop. 1
Mrs. Frank Tenant was awarded
the prize for the smallest feet. Mrs.
Tenant is a very hale, active old lady
for her age, something over 80 we are
informed She wins the $2.00 from
the Fuller Merc. Co. of Cowles.
John Waller was awarded the prize
for making the longest journey over
land to effect a settlement in the
county. 750 miles was the distance he
traveled without using the railroad.
The prize is $2.00 worth of aluminum
ware given by Morhait IJros.
Mrs. Effie Harvey was awarded
the pi izc for living longest on the
same section of land. This pi izc is
$1.00 given by James Peterson of

pii'e for the neatest farm yard, a
pocket knife by Henry Cook.
There was an interesting competi
tion for a prize awarded by the Star
Clothing Company for the h'ggest
head on the ground. Iheio weie
four competitors and the smallest
head among the four lequhcd a seven
and a half hat. There were two
whoso heads were of the same size,
